Now in its 12th year, the North End Holiday Shop & Stroll has become a seasonal tradition for a fun Friday night of local shopping and nibbles. Shoppers had free reign to explore the trendy boutiques and specialty shops through the neighborhood’s fabled streets. Stores offered holiday refreshments and special discounts as shoppers punched their ‘passport’ cards to win gift baskets. Participating shops for the holiday stroll this year were Shake The Tree, Loft and Vine, Exhale Battery Wharf, Sedurre, Ensemble, Ivyees, LIT Boutique, Sol Optics, in-jean-ius, North Bennet Street School, I Am Books, Salmagundi, Heart and Sole, MyStryde and Polkadog Bakery.
